i tried lyrics – brandy

“i tried”

[first verse]
i’m sittin’ home on a cold day
underneath the covers like a little baby
think i wanna hear some coldplay
especially that song when the man says

[bridge]
‘did i drive you away?’
i know what you’ll say
oh i know
i know all about your ways
what you do
when you’re gone
and i knew
all along
and they say people change
so i, tried to look the other way

[chorus 2x]
i tried to be blind to your game
deep down i knew you wouldn’t stay around
shoulda left your side in the first place
but i thought i’d be cool

[second verse]
all i can see is yo-ur face
givin’ my lovin away at some woman’s place
maybe i should get up and go wash my face
cryin’ never kept you at home anyway

[bridge]
did i drive you away? (no i didn’t but you said it)
i know what you’ll say
oh i know
i know all about your ways
what you do
when you’re gone
and i knew
all along
and they say people change
so i, tried to look the other way

[chorus]
i tried to be blind to your game (tried to be blind, yeah)
deep down i knew [deep down i knew, inside oh]
shoulda left your side in the first place
but i thought i’d be cool

[chorus]
i tried to be blind to your game (i tried to be blind)
deep down i knew (but i knew it, oh oh oh oh)
shoulda left your side in the first place
but i thought i’d be cool

[bridge 2]
i noticed it
the calls you get
leaving the room and sh*t
and i knew
you had a b*tch
i hated it
that’s what i get

[chorus out]
